This new series of collages and objects deal with ways of seeing. Using humour, they explore displacement and aim to provoke enquiry into how one receives, perceives and imagines physical 'otherness'. The work explores nature's boundless capacity for reinvention and rejuvenation, as well as the necessity for these processes as a means of survival. Referencing nature and alchemy, the work discusses the effects of progression and existence on nature and our environment.
